Yesterday, we learned that Spider-Man will no longer be in the MCU. While it was reported that something could change and that Disney and Sony could come to a new agreement – it doesn’t seem like that will be the case after the latest statement that Sony put out on Twitter. They essentially say it comes down to Disney not agreeing and that they’re prepared to go forward making Spider-Man movies without Marvel Studios.
You can read it below:
Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film.We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own. Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.
So if you were hoping for a new deal, it looks as though this could take a while. Sony believes they can make money on the Spider-Man properties without Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, as they did it with Venom – though it was said Feige helped with that movie in an uncredited way.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens – but it’s not looking like a deal will happen in the immediate future. As far as the future of these movies goes, it’s said that Tom Holland is still slated to appear in two more Spider-Man films – so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.
What do you think of their statement? Are you still looking forward to Sony’s Spider-Man movies? Be sure to tell us all of your thoughts in the comments down below!
